We are at the generational crossroads of workplace composition in Canada. For the first time in modern history there are 5 generations in the average Canadian workplace, and it is estimated that by 2025, at least 75% of the workforce in Canada will be Millennials, Gen X and the newest generation, Zs. 


This session will explore some of the challenges and opportunities businesses face as the generational balance tips as the Boomers continue to retire and the Millennials and Gen Z take their place.  What will this mean for your industry, your managers, and supervisors?  What will be the impact on your organizational culture, trends, social norms, recruitment, and retention strategies? 


In this session we will look at the generational difference & similarities in the workplace (myths and facts), explore how to manage a multi-generational workforce, discuss how to remove generational barriers and stereotypes AND, explore the concept of managing individuals, not generations. 


In this 2.5-hour session, we will: 

  • Gain insight into the generations represented in today's workplace 

  • Look at the generational difference & similarities in the workplace (myths and facts?) 

  • Explore how to manage a multi-generational workforce 

  • Discuss options on how to reward and motivate all generations 

  • Discuss how to remove generational barriers and stereotypes 

  • Examine how the baby boomer’s retirement will create leadership opportunities for Millennials

  • AND, explore the concept of managing individuals, not generations
